The Hockey Alberta provincial Junior B championships begin today at the County Sportsplex. The County of GP JDA Kings and seven other teams are vying for the provincial crown. Kings coach Kyle Chapple (chapel) is expecting some high calibre hockey this weekend.
“It is going to be good, fast hockey. People are going to be surprised. I think people are going to think that it is only Junior B. But I do not think that is a fair statement. It is really good to watch and I think a lot of people are going to be surprised.”
The first game goes at 1, featuring North Peace against Calgary. The Kings play their opener at 8 tonight against Blackfalds.
